Here Comes the Bride

My step-daughter, Theresa got married Saturday. Isn't she a beautiful bride?



Her new family includes her husband Ryan and his daughter Cherokee.



This is my absolute favorite picture so far from the wedding. My husband, Drew, dancing with his little princess.

Queen Anne's Lace Finis

The Queen Anne's Lace Chair Doily AKA afghan for Theresa and Ryan is finished! The wedding is Saturday but I will give it to them this evening when they come for supper.

I am really pleased with the way it turned out. With acrylic you never know. They have a child and many pets and wash at the laundromat so acrylic was the only choice.



The pattern for the shawl is free on Mmario's group.

Here is a closer look at the pattern. I did the pattern as written but there is an extended version that I will try for my next one which is already on the needles.



I did not block it at all. this is straight out of the dryer. They live in Arizona so it will probably get it's best use as a chair doily.
I absolutely loved knitting it. Round patterns are my favorite!
Thanks to Ariel for reminding me to add that I used size 10 US needles and Lion Brand acrylic yarn.
